    Do yourself a favor and put your time and ingredients into the recipe for Gingerbread Cake w/ Blueberry Sauce instead of this recipe. The Cream Cheese Frosting is very nice in this recipe(though it does need just a little more sugar to thicken it properly), but the cake itself is too dry and seriously lacking in the Ginger department. If the icing sounds like a must to you...make the other cake and use this icing in place of the Blueberry sauce. You can read my review of the other cake if you go to that recipe.

    I will make this dessert again - my husband, two teenagers and I all liked it. I made it exactly as instructed. The cake is not very sweet at all, but is quite fragrant and spicy. The best part of this dessert are the cream cheese frosting and the lemon curd. I've never had gingerbread with lemon sauce before, but it make for a quite elegant little dessert. I would make this for company at the holidays. The lemon curd is a bit tart, but the frosting is so sweet that it all balanced out very well. This was a hit at our house.
